While the Los Angeles Dodgers are less than a week away from reporting for the start of Spring Training 2.0 at Dodger Stadium, former teammate Andrew Toles is navigating personal struggles in the public spotlight.

Toles was arrested this week in Florida when he was found sleeping behind a Federal Express building, located at Key West International Airport. Police offers wrote in their report that Toles was given multiple opportunities to leave the premises before arresting him on a misdemeanor charge of trespassing.

Language in the police report suggested Toles is homeless. The incident marked another challenge in what’s seemingly been a difficult few years for the former Tampa Bay Rays draft pick.

After spending four days in jail, Toles made bond and was released, according to Pedro Moura of The Athletic:

The 28-year-old has appeared in 96 games over parts of three seasons with the Dodgers, batting .286/.333/.459 with 14 doubles, eight home runs and 35 RBI. Toles surprisingly made his MLB debut with the club in 2016 and had an immediate impact.

However, his 2017 campaign was cut short due to an ACL injury. Toles then appeared in just 17 games the following season.

Toles was an unexpected absence when the Dodgers reported to Camelback Ranch for Spring Training last year. He did eventually report to extended Spring Training but left the organization shortly after.

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said at the time he believed it was so Toles could spend time with his family. Toles never played at any level during the 2019 season and there was not an expectation he would return this year.

Toles remains on the restricted list and not part of the club’s 40-man roster.
